Bottas says Hamilton wants him to stay

Valtteri Bottas says his teammate Lewis Hamilton has told him “directly” that the duo shouldn’t be split up by Mercedes for 2022 and beyond. “Yes, Lewis has told me directly that he would like me to be his teammate,” Bottas told Finland’s MTV Sport after racing in his own duathlon at the weekend. However, Bottas says he is used to the annual uncertainty about his next contract. “In this business, your skin thickens all by itself,” Bottas smiled. “I can’t say who we’re going to talk to and what’s going on, but things are being discussed so that we can find the best option for next season,” he said.
